HBH operates this website. It is HBH’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors
Like most website operators, HBH collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. HBH’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how HBH’s visitors use its website. From time to time, HBH may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.  HBH also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for visitors. HBH only discloses visitor IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to HBH’s websites choose to interact with HBH in ways that require HBH to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that HBH gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, visitors who complete the “Contact Us” form will need to provide their Name, Email Address, and Phone Number. HBH collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with HBH. HBH does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics
HBH may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, HBH may monitor the most popular blogs use a spam guard to help identify spam. HBH may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, HBH does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
HBH discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on HBH’s behalf or to provide services available at HBH’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using HBH’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. HBH will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, HBH discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when HBH believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of HBH, third parties or the public at large. HBH takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
